Programs for Wounded, Ill and Injured Service Members and Caregivers
The USO National Capital District supports service members and their families who are recovering and receiving treatment at NSA Bethesda, home of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. In addition, USO supports active duty service members who serve at the various hospitals. Please email Amy Altersitz for more information about outdoor events.
Salute to the Troop
USO National Capital District offers additional targeted services and events for wounded, ill and injured troops as part of Salute to the Troops. These programs provide service members and their caregivers the opportunity to participate in excursions throughout the year with focus areas including therapeutic recreation, family interaction and involvement, and as a tool for service members to cope with their new lifestyle.
